Register now for farm chemical collection

Thinking of cleaning out your shed before Christmas?

ChemClear are holding a chemical collection day in December for anyone with farm chemicals they would like to safely dispose of.

Burnie Mayor Steve Kons said, “It’s that time of year when farms and properties are being cleaned up and this provides a great opportunity to get rid of potentially dangerous chemicals that may be stored in growers sheds.”

Registrations are essential for the December collection. Once registered a date for your collection will be arranged.

“The booking line closes for this collection on November 18 so I encourage all agvet chemical users to review the chemicals they are storing in their sheds, take an inventory of these products and register them for the upcoming collection in December,” Mayor Kons said.

To Register, call 1800 008 707 or visit http://www.chemclear.com.au

ChemClear provides a reliable and responsible collection and disposal service for users of agricultural and veterinary chemicals. ChemClear's goal is to reduce the quantity of obsolete chemicals stored on properties and in businesses across Australia.

Mayor Kons explains the disposal could even be free, “Upon registration, the chemicals are classified as either group one or group two. Group one chemicals are currently registered products from participating agvet manufacturers and are accepted free of charge. Group two chemicals are products from non-participating manufacturers, unlabelled or unregistered and a fee for disposal per litre is charged to collect these products.”
